Centenarian Acer saccharinum

The two Acer saccharinum trees (silver maples) in the North Garden of Saint Luke in the Fields are 100 years old according to the church's garden pamphlet.  Saint Luke was built in 1821 on a two-acre city block.

In a future post, we'll describe other garden areas at Saint Luke: Barrow Street Garden (no. 1), the Contemplation Corner (no. 2), South Lawn (no. 3), the Allée (no. 4), and Rectory Garden (no. 5).
